Cutting it close.......
Our weaving guild challenge this year is "Space.....to boldly go where you have not gone before" - our challenge item could have to do with outer-space, galaxies, space in weave structures, weave something you have not dared to weave before. I was inspired by the work of other weavers online that have woven scarves, shawls and wall hangings using a spaced warp technique so I decided to give it a try.
I would have had a picture of the shawl warp that I got on the loom today but I had to go back and correct a 5 thread cluster of threading errors so I never got to weaving other than to double check the threading again. That's what happens when one sees smoke between the trees where it shouldn't be and jumps up to check it out. They've been getting handle on the lightening caused fires but this one was caused by a mower this afternoon - sheesh, be smart people. Copters and engines quickly knocked it down. I turned on a local radio station that's great with fire updates so found out within minutes what was going on. It's going to be a long fire season, sometimes I wonder how I'll keep my sanity until October.
